    Craigslist Template Help

    jbravo1224

      Hello,

       

      I am pulling my hair out trying to code a template in Dreamweaver to work in Craigslist. I have all my styles inline. I think I have all the tags correctly coded. When I post the code into Craigslist the template explodes. I wanted to find out if there was an easy solution or a setting in Dreamweaver CS4 that would help do this for me.

       

      Thanks!

          Craig's List.  Shudder.  Seriously.  Just use plain text and images and don't try anything fancy. The following code is from an actual Craig's List ad BTW.

          but you are scared to bring it to someone to get it fixed
          because you don't want anyone seeing what you've downloaded?

            I read somewhere (rumor probably) that posting ANYTHING on Craig's list automatically put you in an FBI database and on several federal and local watchlists.

            Like I said... probably just a rumor.

              Rumors often have a grain of truth to them. Where I live, CL has been in hot water on more than a few occasions.
